|Sondheim - Death III b/w Death V - 442-net7-06jun - Sondheim|
A departure from the usual electronic leanings, as 4-4-2 Music begins to truly branch out, and we are proud to present these 2 tracks of improvised zither tones. The tracks relate to mourning, the Alps, romanticism, Webern... Death III is made playing what are known as an elegie concert zither and a prime concert zither simultaneously. Concert zithers are also know as Alpine zithers; they're difficult, have a fingerboard with frets on one side...

|Soul Eyed Sister / Yes My Dear - dmyra|
dmyra returns with another couple of folk tinged pop experiments. With traces of glitchy electronics underpinning melody and drawling guitar and voice inflections, Soul Eyed Sister takes its place as a legitimate A-side. Yes My Dear dives into synthetics with droning distortions over micro-melodies and stuttering drum machines.

|Stray Theories - Walking Away From It b/w Part Of Me - 442-net7-06may - Stray Theories|
A peaceful interlude in this month's e-Single of the Month Club release. Stray Theories lets stray breakbeats slow down and disappear below washes of synth moods. Coldness and warmth struggle to overcome each other, neither emerging victorious. The 4-4-2 Music e-Single of the Month Club brings you a virtual 7" record every month featuring quirky oddities and genre escapees. If you would like to contribute to the e-single of the month club, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Symfonicka Onanie - Marek Gabriel Hruska|
Following an EP of cover versions released a few months ago, Marek Gabriel Hruska returns with a couple of remixes of tracks from his forthcoming .:%?! EP. With his regular blend of folk and electronica (but sounding nothing like 'folktronic'), massed harmonies and acoustic instruments sit underneath distorted beats and insistent pulses.
